Harvey Weinstein's lawyer on #MeToo and the "difference between sins and crimes"

In an exclusive interview, Harvey Weinstein's new defense attorney tells "CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King she's confident he'll be exonerated in the criminal cases against him. The former movie producer is facing charges in New York on allegations of sexual violence against two women. His trial starts in January. More than 70 women have accused him of wrongdoing since an explosive New York Times investigation two years ago that inspired the #MeToo movement. Weinstein denies all of the allegations. Weinstein's attorney, Donna Rotunno, is a former prosecutor who has built her reputation on defending men accused of sexual assault and rape. She has handled about 40 cases defending men accused of sexual misconduct but the trial of Harvey Weinstein is her most high profile case to date.
